Pretty good man. Only critique I have is the drums are a bit too loud. Fix that and I think it will be perfect.

Well I know the samples are a bit weak; but you must understand that that's the best that can be done with soundfonts. Anything better requires something like EQWL or Garritan; which I don't currently have the money for. But thanks for the critique.

 

My critique wasn't meant to be overly harsh or offensive to you but to rather point out the standard at which your music will be judged when going for work. Even with the samples set you have, I do believe the production value could be pushed quite a bit more. Experiment more with velocity settings, automation and even slight changes in tempo/note placement. 

At some point, if you really want to compete for game jobs, you're going to have to spend some more cash on your toolset as it's really holding your back. That's what birthdays and holidays (like Xmas and such) are for!! smile.png

 

Oh no, it's no problem. Critique is a good thing for me.

 

And I do plan to eventually maybe get EWQL Silver or something like that... But for now, I'm stuck with using soundfonts.

There's some nice ideas here but the production could be polished quite a bit more to give the song more impact and make it better align with current AAA-level game music. Some of your samples are quite weak and that's distracting. Also the string samples have a slow(er) attack than this style of music requires. I do love the direction however!

 

Hope that helps!

In Topic: "Fight or Dance?" a new retro fighting game song I did.

I reckon you definitely have some composing skills, and the song does give me the vibes from the 90's; who could forget the midi sound coming from the computer. That said, I don't long for the nineties. Do you have any other material where you show off your 21st century skills?

Well I love 90's VG music, so that tends to be what I compose.

 

Great old school sound. Bass seems a bit low to me though. I like the lead, kind of reminds me of Sega Genesis.

Thanks man. When you say low do you mean in volume or in pitch?


In Topic: "Just Stomp" a new dance song by me...

Hey, Yang here. It's been a while since I posted a new song. But I recently came up with an idea for a song when I was fooling around with Reaper. I would describe as a techno dance song.



Tell me what you think about it.

 

This is borderline-breakbeat to me. Which is a good thing: much of the other dance music involves overusing the same "4x" rhythm. I also like how you're not trying to overdo compression like most other modern dance artists....

Thanks for the comment man, I appreciate it.
